Types of Profiles and Wires
Common profiles and wires for greenhouse construction include:
Frame Profiles form the skeleton of the greenhouse structure and typically made of galvanized steel or aluminium.
Profiles come in Various shapes and sizes which can be square, rectangular, or round shapes that can support the greenhouse covering film.
Gutter profiles collect and channel rainwater or irrigation run-off along the sides of the greenhouse. The gutter profiles are usually PVC or aluminium installed on the sidewalls of the greenhouse.
profiles at the peak of the greenhouse provide support and stability. They run along the top ridge of the greenhouse structure to connect and enhance strength of roofing materials.
These are horizontal beams or bars that run perpendicular to the ridge profiles. They distribute the weight of the roof materials and provide additional support to the greenhouse cover.
Wire lock profiles
They secure and hold the greenhouse covering material such as polythene film or shade net. They are designed with grooves where wires or lock strips can be inserted to ensure a tight attachment of the greenhouse polythene cover.
Support wires are tension wires that are suspended horizontally or vertically within the greenhouse structure. They provide additional support to the plants or enable hanging of various equipment like trellising systems, shading screens, or irrigation lines.
Choosing Profiles & Wire materials
Greenhouse structures can vary depending on the climatic conditions, crop types and specific needs of the grower. Always go for quality non-corrosive and strong profiles and wires such as galvanized steel or aluminium.
